Friday Sketchers and Simon Says Stamp Challenge

Here's where I try and get a little bit clever and enter two challenges with one card ( I think that that's allowed !)

The Simon Says Stamp Challenge posted this lovely autumn scene taken in a Boston Park as it's inspiration and the Friday Sketcher's challenge #122 sponsored by Prairie Fairy was an interesting one so I thought . . . . kill two birds with one stone.

The image is Peachy Tilda.  I've coloured her with Copic Ciao markers:

Skin: E000; E00; E02 and R20

Hair: E33; E35 and E37

Dress: G00; BG15; BG23

Headband: YR23; YR68

Boots: YR23; YR68

Peaches: YR20; YR07; G00 and YG23

Basket: E51; E33 and E37

Shadow: YR00

The designer background papers are from the Kaisercraft "Peachy Keen" collection.  I've used some rub ons from "K&Co K Kenna" collection to decorate the card a little more and to fill in the blank space next to Tilda.

I've used a metallic copper vellum sticker to edge all of the matted shapes and I've mitred all corners to give a neat finish.  The metallic vine sticker is from Mrs Grossman stickers "Autumn Vine".  I love this company's products.

The 30mm two tone peach rose is from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the smaller peach roses are from my stash.  The spiralled flower stems are finished off with a faux pearl bead.

The card corners have been embellished with flatbacked faux pearl gemstones.

I've got my fingers crossed for this, if you don't enter, you can't win, right? lol !

Thanks for reading,
